Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund (NADF) submitted a proposal to FedNor’s Northern Ontario Development Program (NODP) based on needs identified by First Nation communities and individuals residing in close proximity to the Ring of Fire.  The proposal was approved by FedNor in July 2013, receiving $4.4M in project funding over 3 years.  The funding will provide much needed human and financial resources to enhance NADF’s ability to support business development activity in the north.

Twelve (12) new positions were included in the project proposal:  Senior Project Manager, Business Development Officers (3), Due Diligence Analyst, Business Information Officer Coordinator, Administrative Assistant, Community Planners (2), Youth Program Coordinator, Web/Graphic Designer and Special Initiatives Advisor.  

A team was formed and a logo developed to depict activities under four pillars:

The program was branded as Nishnawbe Maajijikaywin, which translates to “Aboriginal Startup” in Oji-Cree.
